  2. 2. Notability<br />Subject must receive significant coverage in reliablesources that are independent of the subject, and is presumed to meet the criteria for its own stand-alone article or list.<br />
  3. 3. No original research<br />We do not accept: facts, allegations, ideas and stories for which no reliable published source exists.<br />Secret: Oral history that is published online is able to be used, as long as only the facts are delivered.<br />
  4. 4. Sources<br />Anything that could be challenged must be backed up by a reliable source.<br />A reliable source is published is from a trusted new source or publisher.<br />We prefer secondary sources. Primary are okay but should not be the only source used in an article.<br />
